3 / 5 Okay
The bath was attractive. The breakfast was Ok. The dinner was a joke. As we are vegetarian we were told vegetarian alternative would be available. We had salad (7-11-style bland as hell), corn (yes, corn!) soup, that most famous of French dishes, evidently from a can and sparingly scooped into a shallow bowl, boiled veggies, more of the same boiled veggies mixed with rice and labelled as risotto, a cheese plate each (for an additional 3600 yen) consisting of two yellow triangles of tasteless non-French plastic, a single small triangle of brie, two candied lumps and a dollop of blue, all accompanied with three tiny strips of yesterday's bread. The wine was excellent, the only French part of the evening. The restaurant was dull, pretentious and engulfed in silence, like a library, with an endless array of black and white suited waiters carrying small dishes around presenting them as if interesting. A dull evening was had by all. Most of the food we ate is available in family restaurants at a fraction of the price and there is no need to dress up and pretend you are having a French experience.
